There is a strong and intensifying trend of cybercriminals targeting high-net-worth individuals.

Barclays bank reports that the “staggering rise of cyber-attacks over the pandemic means the wealthy should consider how best to protect themselves from cybercrime.”

Barclays also states they are perceived to be high-value targets without the same level of security as corporations.

That assessment by cybercriminals is, by and large, accurate. Most high-net-worth individuals are walking targets, having little or no idea how their own daily activities are compromising their own and their family’s privacy.

The FBI reported a record-shattering 791,790 complaints of cybercrime in 2020, with losses exceeding $4 billion. And that trend is accelerating.

This is an alarming state of affairs, given that a recent study indicated that well over 25% of ultra-high-net-worth families, family offices, and family businesses have been targeted by cybercriminals.

According to the same study, 98% of very wealthy families cited reputation as “important to their family’s success.” Yet only a third of these families had conducted rudimentary cybercrime awareness training!

Help is available, but you have to set it up and delegate it properly for that help to work. The steps required to protect your privacy may not be second nature to you now. But you can change that.

Robust cyber security measures are just as important, and arguably more important, in your personal life than for your business or organization.

Most fail to grasp the potentially catastrophic impact of a cyber attack on their own lives, on their families’ lives, and on their business’s or organization’s operations.

Only you can decide whether it is a priority for you and your family to connect the dots. But once you do – we are here for you.
